Catching up

Spending far too much time on Instagram and loving this new app "A beautiful mess", not bad for 69p!
Even purchased some gorgeous screen printed fabric via Instagram from @leannefanny (also known as the little house martin on Etsy).
More fabric to add to my stash! Center City by Jay McCarroll purchased from the lovely Village Haberdashery. This has plans for a bag but not sure which one yet as I have so many patterns that I want to try out!
Some wonderful finds at my local Charity shop!!
A simple Tweet and I was lucky recipient of a goodie bag from Sarah Smith! I love her dishcloths and can't wait to try out some of the other extra goodies that were included!
This Monday was a Bank Holiday in the UK and we actually saw the sun! It has since disappeared and been replaced by the rain but never before had I noticed the quilty design on my sunglasses case! Probably as they don't come out too often!

Finally really excited that the Fat Quarterly Retreat class lists are out!! Can't believe that it is only about 8 weeks away and I have lots of plans on my to do list before the retreat:
1. Name tag to make for the name tag swap
2. Sample swap makes x3 - really hope my idea goes to plan!!
3. I will make a Sew Sweetness Aeroplane bag to haul my supplies etc to the Retreat plus bring back lots of new fabric and aurifil threads!!
4. Also have plans for a new everyday bag to take to the retreat. Loved my Amy Butler Cosmo bag from last year but feel I need a new one!!
5. Some other secret sewing plans for the retreat!

Think that's me caught up for now!!
